George Town's north beach
Not very well known as a beach in Penang, but North Beach is there all right, tucked in front of the old Paramount Hotel (established in 1948) and its restaurant in Northam Road. This picture was taken at almost eight o'clock in the evening at very low lights, so do excuse the almost mono-chrome colour and poor definition. Fishermen still use this beach when they bring in their boats after a productive trip at sea, selling the freshest fish, prawns and crabs to the hotel's restaurant, I suppose.
